Silicon Valley's Drako Motors unleashes track-torching 206-mph electric sedan

It's become all too common for a startup to materialize out of nowhere with claims of having the next groundbreaking electric car. In fact, it's happened twice this month alone. Much less common is for that startup to accompany those claims with a production-ready vehicle. But here comes Drako Motors, a Silicon Valley-based startup you've probably never heard of, with an all-out hyper-GT it says is ready for production. Four doors, four seats and four motors, the 1,200-hp GTE debuts as the world's most powerful sedan, a grand tourer built to exceed 200 mph (322 km/h) and vector sharply around twisting pavement with four passengers and all their bags...

Fossil fuels burnt for things like energy and transportation might be the first things that come to mind when considering climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions, but a sizable portion also come from agriculture – around 9 percent, according the EPA. Within that, the methane belched out by the world's cows is a particularly potent contributor, but scientists are preparing alternative diets for these livestock that could cut these harmful emissions out altogether...

Historically, Dell has addressed the market for higher-end gaming desktops with their Alienware-branded machines, which are frequently built around unlocked CPUs as well as advanced graphics cards. Meanwhile, for those who wanted Dell-branded gaming PCs without the Alienware premium, the company has offered their custom-built Inspiron as well as XPS-branded machines; though there's a large gap between the premium XPS and basic Inspiron as well. So, looking to bridge the gap between their machines and produce a line of gaming-centric yet still reasonably affordable desktops, at this year's Gamescom the company is introducing its first ever Dell G-series desktops.

Once you install it, you should notice better battery life, as well as both general camera improvements and some relating specifically to the pop-up mechanism of the selfie shooter. The Camera app's version has been updated, as has the version of Google Maps that's pre-installed. There are also some Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-focused bug fixes built-in, alongside the usual unnamed "general bug fixes and system improvements".

Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi is busy working on its next mid-rangers, the Redmi 8 series. The Redmi 8 itself was spotted in some hands-on images earlier today, and now it's the Redmi Note 8 Pro's turn. Based on Redmi's past naming conventions, this is likely to be the highest-end of its upcoming mid-rangers. It seems to have leaked on a set where its TV commercial was being filmed. If so, that's probably a first in the mobile world. Anyway, you can see that the design of its back has the same overall language as what we've seen in the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro flagships.

Huawei's upcoming Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro have so far been rumored to sport 25W wireless charging, which would be the fastest yet, as well as 55W wired charging, just to break two records at once. But what about their battery capacities? According to a new post on China's Weibo, the cells you see in the image below are going to be the ones fitted to the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. If this is true - and that's a big "if" - then the Mate 30 should get a 4,200 mAh unit, while the Pro model will have a 4,500 mAh battery keeping its lights running. That would be a 5% increase in capacity...Huawei's Mate X foldable will launch with Kirin 990 SoC and the P30's cameras
After Samsung was forced to pull the Galaxy Fold and re-engineer some bits and pieces to make it more durable, Huawei also postponed the launch of its direct competitor to that device, the Mate X. The Chinese company's first folding smartphone should be out in November. If you've been wondering what Huawei has been doing to the Mate X to warrant such a long time passing before it finally hits the shelves, it looks like it didn't just go with cosmetic changes like its Korean rival. Instead, Huawei also saw fit to upgrade some of the Mate X's internals. Thus, it will launch with the...Samsung cuts LCD production, shifts focus to new QD-OLED displays
Samsung has remained one of the leading display manufacturers for quite some time and the latest innovation in the brand's product line will be its Quantum Dot OLED (QD-OLED) panels. The company already uses Quantum Dot (QD) technology for its TVs while OLED panels have been a staple in its mobile division for more than a decade. Now Samsung is aiming to merge the best of both display technologies into a single solution. A new report from The Korea Herald claims the brand has already begun limiting its LCD production lines across its facilities in South Korea mainly due to lowered...Amazon reveals Xiaomi Mi A3 Indian price ahead of launch

6 of the best light masks for acne, according to reviews
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, adult acne is on the rise, affecting up to 15 percent of women. (As if adulting wasn’t already stressful enough!)
Though topical creams may get the job done for some, there’s a new kind of acne treatment that’s becoming increasingly popular: acne light therapy. Basically, this high-tech solution aims to kill the bacteria that causes acne and prolongs the vicious breakout cycle. It also targets age spots, acne scars, discoloration, and other blemishes. Light treatments work by shining different types of LED light (either red or blue light) onto your skin at a close distance. The red light treatment takes aim at inflammation while the blue light treatment targets the acne-causing bacteria ...Study finds connection between using emoji and having sex

A pair of studies examined attitudes toward emoji use in interpersonal situations.

A new study is putting U.S. wireless carriers on blast for slowing down online video traffic, even during periods where they claim they are not.
Research conducted by Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts found that wireless companies — including the main four U.S. carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, all slowed down video traffic from early 2018 to 2019.
The resulting effect for consumers is delayed load times, buffering, and degradation in quality when streaming video content.
These carriers have long maintained that this practice, known as throttling, is done to avoid congestion. However, the study found that online video throttling was occurring around the clock, regardless of congestion. Read more.....Gmail is super busted right now (it's not just you)
Gmail just gave you the perfect Monday gift: a legitimate excuse to ignore all of your boss's emails.
According to Google, some users of the company's email service are unable to log into their accounts. The problems were first acknowledged by Google just before 12 p.m. PT today and while access for some people has since been restored, the issue is ongoing for others.
"The affected users are unable to access Gmail," reads the latest status update (at the time of this writing) from Google. "Users may experience issues signing into all Google services via OAuth or Chrome devices."
Looks like Google authentication has taken a dive. Chromebook users - you now have a doorstop for a computer if you weren't logged in.

Twitter and Facebook have suspended accounts for running a state-sponsored propaganda campaign targeting Hong Kong protesters.
Twitter says it suspended 936 accounts that were "deliberately and specifically attempting to sow political discord in Hong Kong" as well as 200,000 more "spammy" accounts that were "proactively suspended before they were substantially active."
The accounts in question targeted protesters in Hong Kong, who have been demonstrating for weeks.
Twitter described the ring of accounts as a "significant state-backed information operation," and noted that some accounts were created using VPN services. Read more...More about Tech, Facebook, Twitter, Tech, and Social Media CompaniesWhat is a VPN? And why do I need one?Ad Content from IPVanish

At long last, we can say for sure that dogs love the fine arts.
Earlier this month, a group of service dogs attended a theater performance of Billy Elliot at the Stratford Festival in Ontario, Canada. After the show, a photo of some of the dogs sitting up diligently in their seats made the rounds on Twitter. This makes sense: The photo is so cute that it does not even seem real.
